New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner acknowledged his concern over third baseman Alex Rodriguez's name surfacing in connection with a Florida clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs.
A report in the Miami New Times in January said Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other PEDs from Biogenesis of America, an anti-aging clinic operated by Anthony Bosch that is now closed.
"It's out of our hands," Steinbrenner said Friday outside the Yankees' minor-league complex in Tampa. Fla. "We'll cooperate with MLB in any way we can, any way we're asked to. But, other that that, there's not much to say. I know as much as you do."
Rodriguez, who is rehabbing after hip surgery last month, has denied using PEDs since he admitting taking them with the Texas Rangers from 2001 to 2003. He also said Biogenesis records that include his name are not authentic.
The three-time American League MVP is not expected to play this season until after the All-Star Game break.
